The Quiet Genocide in Inner City Communities
by Nova Giovanni
story by Nova Giovanni
Hello, loyal reader. I'm here with some Ramen Noodle Soup for the Soul. The topic at hand is the
genocide going on around us. By definition, genocide is: The deliberate killing of a large group of
people, especially those of a particular ethnic group or nation. There is no need to ask whether
genocide is happening in our American inner cities; it is quite evident. A more relevant question is: are
these genocides being facilitated by a force INSIDE or OUTSIDE of the community? The simple
answer is: BOTH. It is easy to play the blame game. However, let us remember that when we point our
finger; at least three fingers are pointing back at ourselves.
First of all, the prevalence of alcohol and drug use in inner city communities is rampant. Visit any area
dubbed as "The Hood" in America, look for a library, and count how many liquor stores you pass
before arriving there. Instead of sharpening our minds, we are nearly force-fed intoxicants to pacify us
and cloud our judgment. As a direct result, a hectic environment with a heightened crime rate is
created. As far as drugs are concerned, there is no way to justify selling poison. However, a common
myth is all drug dealers sell these poisons to live a glamorous life. In reality, this is hardly the case.
There are many people selling drugs, but not many living a luxurious lifestyle. Perhaps, selling drugs is
appealing to those seeking employment and can't fathom another way of providing for their family. It is
easy to look at a tree, criticizing the worn leaves and deformed branches. Just remember, every tree has
a root. In reality, more gainful employment would eliminate the perceived need in many people to sell
drugs. If you go days without feeding your dog, can you REALLY blame it for tearing open the trash
and eating it?
"The instinct to survive is human nature itself, and every aspect of our personalities derives from it."
-Robert A. Heinlin
Another problem plaguing inner cities is bad health. The combination of sexual promiscuity, poor diets,
and other factors are turning our communities into a breeding ground for disease from the youngest to
the oldest. Sexually transmitted diseases, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, heart disease, obesity,
and diabetes are bigger threats to our personal freedom than foreign terrorism ever has been. Easily
accessible and unhealthy fast food establishments is only ushering us to our graves. In addition, the
traditional diet we call "soul food" is killing us. Perhaps, it is called "soul food" because it sends us to

our creator faster. Furthermore, a majority of people living in these neighborhoods don't have health
insurance. As a result they usually don't seek medical help for their ailments until their illness is severe
and oftentimes the damage is irreversible. Last but not least, another factor in this genocide, be it
metaphorically or literally, is the so-called "War on Drugs." I am far from being a conspiracy theorist,
but it is evident that this "war" is also used an excuse to profile and arrest those in our impoverished
communities. Consequently, young men are arrested, and become modern-day slaves in a scheme of
prison industrialism. For example, Powhatan Correctional Center has a silkscreen, a print shop, and a
license plate tag shop. To narrow it down, Powhatan Correctional Center makes ALL of the license
plates for the state of Virginia at a rate of around one every 20 seconds. The last time I bought license
plates for a new vehicle, it cost me 140 dollars. The inmates working in these tag shops (there are
usually around fifty in the shop at a time) only to get a maximum of forty cents an hour. I'm sure we're
all familiar with the rumor that it costs an extreme amount of money to house inmates. That is merely
propaganda. Prison is a very lucrative industry with a minimum annual profit of two billion dollars.
Television lies, newspapers lie, but numbers don't. In conclusion, there are many more facets to the
genocide in our communities.
Anyone can talk about the problems, it is time to present solutions. I, Nova Giovanni, believe that one
of the best ways to change things from the inside out is through education. Becoming formally
educated and taking it upon ourselves to learn our own history would improve. Achieving higher
education can help us become better established, eventually creating our own jobs and business; thus,
employing others. Through self-education and researching the history of our respective cultures, it will
definitely fill us with an added sense of pride. Me being African-American, after learning things most
schools never teach us about our culture; I started carrying myself with more esteem. I learned Africans
built some of the most grandiose and advanced civilizations, and my history didn't begin with slavery
as public schools would have us assume. Regardless of your ethnicity, I'm sure if you research it you'd
be surprised to see what you find. After all, the higher we think of ourselves, the better we'll treat
ourselves and allow others to treat us. It's messed up where they've got us. It's even more messed up
where we keep ourselves.
I Love You,
Nova Giovanni

The Top 5 Reasons Why I PREFER Black
Women by Nova Giovanni

Hello, loyal reader. Before I begin this list, I'd like to state the fact that it is possible to like one thing
without disliking the other and I am fully capable of this feat. Therefore, my reasons for preferring
Black women in no way automatically means I dislike women of other races.
The following is only five of MANY reasons why I (Nova Giovanni) prefer to date Black women. I'm
sure there are a lot of men who share the very same sentiments:
1. A Black Woman Can Relate to "The Black Experience: As a Black man, there are certain things
we experience that other races don't. Even our thinking is different, and a Black woman can relate to it.
If I'm driving and a police car is behind me, I get nervous. A Black woman won't ask a seemingly (to
me) dumb question like, "why do the police make you nervous if you aren't breaking the law?"
2. Bl

ack Women Season Their Food: Most Black women season their food in a way that is pleasing
to my taste buds. Before you accuse me of perpetuating a stereotype, remember that there is a bit of
truth sprinkled in most stereotypes (sprinkle, seasoning - you see what I did there? Lol). Furthermore,
coming from a multicultural family, I've seen this stereotype proven true time and time again. Put a
blindfold on me, sit me at a cookout table, and witness me taste the difference between my White
aunt's and my Black aunt's potato salad.
3. Black Women Have Brown Nipples: I prefer brown nipples (remember, this article is about my
preferences). Pink nipples remind me of pepperonis. I hate pork!!! Enough said.
4. I Love Black women's Hair: I love it all, ever texture and length. I love every kink, curl, and hue.
Even if it is weave. You paid for it, lady. Mix and match it, glue and stitch it, show off your arts and
crafts skills. Show the world you creativity has no limitations, Black woman!

5. I

Love a Black Woman's Strength: Going back and reiterating the point made in the foreword, this
doesn't mean women of other races aren't strong. However, Black women emit a different kind of
strength. Turning on the television, logging onto the internet, or opening a magazine and seeing that the
world isn't playing fair when it comes to you is enough to hurt the average person's self-esteem. Not a
Black woman though. Most of the Black women media broadcasts is the image of an obnoxious, lazy,
and/or dumbed down woman. In my personal life, I know and have dated way more professional,
intelligent, and career having Black women than what popular culture depicts. I'm not even going to
speak in depth about the slew of Black men who attempt to make Black women feel uncomfortable in
their own skin (that would be a whole separate article.) Brothers, we can prefer to date outside of our
race without attempting to hurt the egos of Black women in the process. Nova Knows.
I Love You (even if you're not Black),

It Takes Courage to Love by Nova Giovanni
Hello, loyal reader. By looking at the title you probably assume this article will be a combination of
unrealistic concepts of love, blended with a dash of corny rhetoric, and sprinkled with generic phrases.
WRONG!
Let me start by reiterating the main point; it takes courage to love. Think about it, any coward can
"casually date" or "pull hoes" (that's EASY). It takes a special kind of person to let their guard down,
over come insecurities, and love someone we aren't obligated to even care about. We see a man with
multiple women, and the common consensus is he is a lucky guy to be so successful with women.
However if he was TRULY successful with women, he would have (successfully) found ONE to make
his partner. Perhaps his own uncertainties won't let him. Maybe his heart was broken when he was
younger and now his self esteem is permanently bruised. I used to look at these kinds of men with
admiration when I was younger. Now, I'm an adult and feel sorry for them. I feel sympathetic for them
because they will never get the kind of love from dating several women that they'll get from settling
down with one woman. Although the example I've given is of a man, this topic is not gender specific
and applies to women as well. Quality is always better than quantity. Nova Knows.
Let us not be mistaken. "Settling down" doesn't necessarily equal love. Love is about letting go of all
your preconceived notions about relationships and giving someone a fresh start in your life. Love is
about not carrying the baggage and hurt from past relationships into your new one. Love is not about
